Atta Girl by Docc Hilford Atta Girl by Docc Hilford -- EFFECT: Three cards are chosen by three spectators. After shuffling and displaying the deck, the magician deals cards singly off the top until the spectators stop him. Amazingly, the three spectators find their own cards! Each revelation is stronger than the last, and the final card is found while the cards are shown face-up! Requires nothing more than the included deck of Bicycle cards No switches Suitable for close-up and stage performances Easy to do



Lolita System by Docc Hilford Lolita System by Docc Hilford -- Docc Hilford has devised a simple yet highly effective system that can be applied to any borrowed deck of cards in minutes, making the free selection of any card or pair of cards instantly known! Here are just a few of the effects possible: Two cards and a word are chosen by three spectators. You hypnotize a woman who reveals the names of the cards and the chosen word! You write three different predictions, each with a spectator's initials on them. The spectators freely select cards and your predictions match the selections! A spectator secretly chooses two coins from his pocket. Another freely chooses two cards. The values of the coins and cards are added together. You know the total, the values of the coins, the names of both cards and even the date on one of the coins! This system took years to develop along with the audience-tested routines. Now you can perform miracles without sleight-of-hand or memory techniques.



Maximum Mind Control by David Eldridge Maximum Mind Control by David Eldridge -- David Eldridge’s booklet Mind Control took the magic world by storm. Here at last was a place to find the  ‘Real Work’ on the Magician’s Force! And, indeed it was. Both the book and the video have been best sellers and that’s with very little advertising on our part. Two years have gone by and David’s NEW and EXPANDED work ‘Maximum Mind Control’ is now out and ONLY available from Brad Burt’s Magic Shop. Maximum Mind Control has THREE TIMES as much material as Mind Control. It contains everything that was in the original Mind Control, but reworked and added to and THEN it builds from there. You get 100 FULL SIZE pages in a spiral bound format for easy reading and study. Yes, we ARE paying more to have them spiral bound, but this is a work book for magicians who want to CONTROL what their spectators select and when they select it! There is work here from such brilliant minds as Kenton Knepper, Lee Eearle, Peter Marcucci, and Bob Farmer. This IS the kind of information that will revolutionize your performance, and give you a set of tools and techniques that will add power to your magic. There are NO pipe dreams here. The material inside is practical, use-it-everyday magic technique. Want a quote from a top flight magic guy? Here: “‘Equivoque’ or ‘The Magician’s Choice’ is an important, yet oft misunderstood and abused technique in magic. David Eldridge is a master of the art. Through his entertaining magic and metalism, he teaches the proper application of this very important tool. I have no “choice”, but to recommend his work.” -Michael Sibbernsen, Magic entertainer, writer, and creative consultantMaximum Mind Control contains items that Dave used to produce in the shop and sell as fast as he could make them!  Highly recommended.



Mentalism Incorporated - Hickok Mentalism Incorporated - Hickok -- This is a book for what may prove a small audience. I'm not sure. Here is what you get: The finest book yet released on WORKING for corporations....and how to use Mentalism in that particular setting. You get everything: Routines, patter, how to contact and who to talk to. And, well much, much more. This is the real stuff and frankly the price is much to low. I can tell you from personal experience that in any other professional setting the information in this book (which is beautifully hardbound, etc. by the way) would cost $200-500. I'm not kidding. Information of this quality and specific nature, that deals with an area of magic performance that commands HIGH fees, etc. would cost hundreds in any other setting. If you have even a little bit of a handering to work for big money you should get and read this book. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.



Self-Working Mental Magic Self-Working Mental Magic -- 121 pages and 73 usefull illustrations support 67 easy and fun 'fake' psychic tricks. This is a great and inexpensive way to start learning about this interesting area of the Magic Craft.



Wonder Readings by Knepper / Sikes Wonder Readings by Knepper / Sikes -- NOTICE!  This wonderful package is BACK and it's now on 6 CD's.  I believe that the spiral bound book is now something like a PDF...on the 6th CD...pretty sure that's what they have done!  Love it!  The price has dropped a whopping $75.00 and that's pretty cool!  This is flat out the best product of it's type and it's been unavailable for several years.  If you are looking to add entertaining "Psychic" readings to your show this product rocks.  Highly recommended for those wanting to work in this profitable niche market.NOTE 2:  For those leary of the 'psychic' reading concept note that you need not have to play it that way.  You can do "personality readings" or whatever.  On an ethical level, you can make it clear that what you are doing is for entertainment purposes, and that it is the product of intensive study into the "nature" of the human experience or whatever spin you prefer.  Buying the 120 page spiral bound book and the 4 audio cassettes that are supplied may be one of the two or three best professional investments you will make as a magician or a mentalist. Although the material would seem to be more in line with what a mentalist would use the fact is that the addition of ‘psychic’, ‘personality analysis’, etc. readings to the programs offered by a magician can be a HUGE money maker. Consider that on average the mentalist can ask for and get MUCH higher fees than most magicians! Why? Is it because what the mentalist offers is so much ‘better’? NO! It is because many times mentalism is simply more interesting to people who would like to believe that ‘maybe’ someone CAN see into the future. I had a magician friend years ago that made a great deal of money by opening with a 30 minute magic act. He finished with a terrific mental routine and then offered to do ‘readings’ for folks after the show. This was of course part of the agreement with the client. He could sometimes pick up as much as . . .
